A new Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig-General Sule Kazaure, assumed office on Monday, the 17th head of the scheme, and promised to prioritize the welfare of corps members and the staff.
Kazaure, who was speaking at the handing over ceremony, in Abuja, acknowledged that the tasks ahead were huge, but with unity of purpose, they could overcome. “I know that the tasks ahead are enormous and the road is rough, but with unity of purpose we will make progress,” he said.
Earlier, his predecessor, Brig-Gen. Johnson Olawumi, said that agitation on the monthly allowance of the serving corps members would soon be yelding the desired result. He explained that the leadership of the scheme had written a series of letter to the federal government to that effect, and that there seemed to be the ray of light at the end of tunnel.”
